|BMI was used as a continuous variable||
Increasing BMI was negatively correlated with physical, social and functional well being.
BMI continued to be a significant independent variable included in the model for social well-being, p = 0.03.
|BMI was significantly associated with QoL. As treatment options become more complex, these variables are likely to be of increasing importance in evaluating treatment effects on QoL.|
